Exciting News from the White House! U.S. Deputy National Security Advisor Anne Neuberger, FCC Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel, and NIST Director Laurie Locascio came together to unveil the groundbreaking U.S. national IoT security label this month!
Infineon Technologies AG says that they proudly stands behind this vital initiative, as they recognise the ever-growing need for robust IoT security. The new label aligns perfectly with the IoT security requirements outlined in NISTIR 8425, driven by an Executive Order to enhance our nation’s cybersecurity. This label will serve as a badge of honour, acknowledging products that meet the stringent U.S. cybersecurity standards.
“Security is crucial for the Internet of Things. Without sufficient cybersecurity, there cannot be any IoT,” said Thomas Rosteck, President of Connected Secure Systems, Infineon Technologies. “As a leading provider of semiconductors for security and IoT devices, Infineon welcomes the step the U.S. government has made and fully supports programs to boost cybersecurity for the Internet of Things. The U.S. label is a significant milestone towards strong global cybersecurity standards. We believe the implementation of this program will empower consumers and further boost the adoption of IoT products in the U.S. and beyond.”

Infineon’s chips provide a secured foundation for many IoT devices. To demonstrate how easily Infineon products can be used to build secured IoT devices, Infineon’s IoT development kit (CY8CKIT-062S2-43012) will seek to obtain the U.S. national label. Certification of this development kit will help our customers to create IoT products that are compliant with the U.S. national label.
Infineon was involved in the development of the IoT label program through its participation as a member of the Connectivity Standards Alliance (CSA). The U.S. cybersecurity guidelines are closely aligned with several CSA standards, including the Matter standard. Matter provides device manufacturers with a secured communication standard for a wide range of smart home applications and thus improves connectivity between smart devices from different manufacturers. CSA’s Product Security effort (chaired by Infineon) will certify that IoT devices meet global security requirements, including those used by the U.S. national label. Together, these standards move the IoT to a higher level of interoperability and security.
